Charger 392 car-show virtual drive (with video)

by Patrick Rall on

Dodge is giving attendees at the 2015 North American International Auto Show a chance to drive the Dodge Charger Scat Pack virtually, in what very well could be the coolest attraction in Detroit’s Cobo Hall.


As you can see in the image above, the company has a new Charger Scat Pack sitting in front of a large flat screen, but what you cannot see is the mechanisms under the car which rock the body from side to side, forward and back.

Each person gets into the new Charger and “drives” the car by using the steering wheel and pedals. On the screen in front of the car is a first-person view, similar to what you would see if you were actually driving the car on a track. As you accelerate, the car that you are sitting in leans back while turning leans the car side to side and braking causes the car to nose down. This gives the driver the sensation of driving the car while playing a video game that has them racing against a group of other modern Dodge products.

This is free, and next to the screen is a leaderboard so anyone attending the Detroit Auto Show in the next week and a half can take a shot at being the quickest to pilot the 2015 Charger around the virtual road course.
